Vedic astrology chart tutorial

The newly redesigned worksheet contains the Birth Chart, Navamsha, Planetary degrees, Nakshatras, Dashas, etc. You can get any divisional chart, transits, all of the supported dasha systems, and several other options together on screen.
With the possibility of seeing any combination of charts on the screen and with the option to design your own printouts, you can completely tailor the program to serve your personal needs. After opening an existing chart on file or entering a new person's data, the worksheet comes up as the default screen. You can now point-and-click on a planet's position in a chart to get detailed information about that planet: the house(s) it rules, its dignity, its aspects, avasthas, etc. To look at the transits for a very specific date or event with emphasis on detailed information and comparison with the birth chart, use the Worksheet. To look at the transits for a long period of time without great detail but along with the birth chart, use the Animated Transits. To look at the transits for a month at a time along with the dashas, use the Graphical Ephemeris. Parashara’s Light 6.0 contains a collection of yogas from a large number of books as well as the entire text of 4 classics. Classical TextsOut of the 4 texts included, the Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra is the largest one, written by Maharishi Parashara.
Krishnamurti system is a unique system within Jyotish which puts special emphasis on the Nakshatras, their Lords, and their Sub-Lords.
There are so many ways you can customize “Parashara’s Light.” In nearly every case in which we know of alternate ways of calculating or showing something, we allow you to choose.
You can select the number of charts that are drawn on the worksheet at the same time to optimize for your particular size monitor.
Chart database: The software includes a chart database of famous people of over 700 charts, organized by category.
Selecting Groups of Charts by User Defined Criteria: Parashara’s Light has a special search feature, which allows you to select a group of charts from your database, based on a condition in the birth chart.
Classical Vedic Texts: Parashara's Light contains 4 classical Vedic Texts within the program and New Interpretive Reports. This feature allows you to analyze an arbitrary set of charts and quickly find similarities between them. The Print All command allows you to print out a number of pages at once, including the user defined printouts.
The Change Location tool allows one to change the birth location interactively: all charts and tables on the worksheet will instantly be recalculated according to the location on the map you click on. The curves drawn on the map show where each of the 12 signs was rising at the time of birth. Note that the same effect cannot so easily be achieved by editing the city in the birthdata: that would require changing the timezone and daylight saving correction to the original values every time you change the coordinates). Because this tool will update any chart or table you place on the worksheet, it is more powerful and versatile than it may seem. You may also use it for the purpose of finding the most auspicious location to start the year. In this new update of Parashara's Light, over 120 pages of personalized tutorial material can take you from an absolute beginner level through all basic and intermediate levels of Vedic Astrology. The tutorial also has relevant links to many reports, so that you can easily see the details of the calculations discussed based on your own chart. The program supports the display of multiple pages at once, so it is possible to see different parts of the tutorial side by side on the screen. Your tutorial is also linked to the worksheet in the most useful manner: when you click on a planet in the birth chart, you will get a "planet summary" page showing you all the relevant calculations for that planet. You can read the tutorial from beginning to end, or you can access each topic in whatever order you prefer.
The Chart Tutor is specially designed to give beginners easy access to some important basic concepts in Vedic Astrology.
To help you read through these descriptions in a systematic way, you can click in any house of the chart on the screen, and the program will automatically display the information relevant to the house you clicked in. The lower part of the screen contains buttons allowing you to read the description of the Ascendant. Often, while looking at a chart, you will wonder when a particular transit will take place. In the same report ,you can merge dasha changes from any of the dasha systems up to any level you specify. The table on the right shows the Sarvashtakavarga for each planets and the totals per house, Samudaya Ashtakavarga.
The graph at the bottom shows the Samudaya Ashtakavarga in a graph that reveals immediately which signs give auspicious results and which become inauspicious by the Ashtakavarga (according to Parashara). The Rectification (Change Birth time) tool offers you a brilliantly simple solution to birth time rectification.

This tool will work in the worksheet, the dasha effects window, the rectification screen etc.
Each page can contain any number of charts and tables, and each item can be precisely sized and positioned. The new File Manager lists your files by the name of the person and automatically saves without you needing to specify a filename.
Files can be copied or moved from directory to directory, or from directory to Quick chart file (and vice versa). There is a simple but very useful feature in “Parashara’s Light” that will benefit anyone who writes books or articles on Vedic Astrology. The Auspiciousness Graph Screen gives you a visual picture of the strengths and afflictions of each planet. The Descriptions Screen is a very versatile screen that allows you to read decriptions of the ascendants, the signs, the planets, the houses, the nakshatras and lordships.
The Sudarshan Chakra screen shows the birth chart from the Ascendant, Moon, and from the Sun. The planet summary page is based on a highly authentic model of interpreting the effect of the planets in the chart. The first section, labeled Strength, tells us that Mars is very strong (147% of what is required) and is the strongest planet of all.
The second section, Auspiciousness, summarizes several indications of how Mars will behave on the scale from very harmful to very auspicious. The third section, Importance, reveals how much this planet is connected to the Ascendant, Moon and Sun.
All of the calculations listed here, some of which may be new to you, are hyperlinked to the tutorial, so you can easily read more about them. You will also find descriptions of the planet's significations, the nakshatra it is placed in, the sign, house, drekkana it occupies, and effects of the planet's lordship. To look at the dasas for a number of very specific dates or events, use the Events List screen. However, the most exciting feature gives you the ability to do an automatic search for all applicable yogas and quotes from all of these books! Followers of this system claim it is capable of making very accurate, and precisely timed predictions.
You can change the layout of the worksheet to completely customize the information shown to your needs. You can design your own printouts with the very sophisticated graphical printout design tool. This means you can step through time, day by day, and instantly see how the muhurta chart becomes auspicious or inauspicious for starting the event.
Automatic retrieval of yogas and quotes for any chart, will yield a 20 page summary directly from the classics, unique for one's horoscope. There are a number of different built-in tests that each look for different parameters in the charts. When you move the mouse cursor over the map, the corresponding ascendant and ascending degree for that location is shown instantly above that map.
For example, you can use it in conjunction with the Shadbala graph to find out where on Earth a particular planet is the strongest. Since the moment of the exact solar return is fixed, your location at that time will determine the Ascendant of the solar return chart.
The tutorial is particularly well structured and designed to help you build a coherent understanding of various calculations and techniques used in Vedic Astrology. Each theme is subdivided into lessons, and each lesson's title is carefully chosen to help build a holistic sense of how many of the details in Vedic Astrology work together. Each of these calculations is hyper linked to the tutorial, so you can easily learn what each calculation is used for.
These are descriptions of the houses, the signs, the lordships, the Ascendant, and the Nakshatras. For example, if you are looking at a chart with Scorpio ascending with Mars in the 3rd house (in Capricorn) and you click in the first house, the program will display the following data: Significations of the 1st house, the sign in the first (Scorpio), the effects of the lord of the 1st (Mars) placed in the 3rd. To read more about the planet’s Nakshatra, sign, etc, simply click on the Planet in the Chart.
Now you can very easily and quickly answer questions like "When will Saturn transit the natal Moon?" or "When will Mars enter the Ascendant? This feature allows you to define a report containing the date and time that transits and dasha changes occur. This allows you to make a highly useful report which includes all the important events used inVedic Astrology.
In addition, you can view the divisional charts for the Varshphal and the monthly and daily solar return charts. It allows you to examine the effects of a different birthtime, in any screen, by simply clicking on one of the buttons.

This screen gives an overview of different times of birth and how, for each time in the list, the dashas would have been for the events entered. The compatibility report indicates the effect of 10 different areas of consideration, as well as a total score.
You can take a picture of the screen, put it into the clipboard, and from there, paste it into any word processor. This page presents all major calculations relevant to the planet, in a way that the interpretation is consistent and clear. We chose Mars because it rules the 10th house, and should be revealing for his current occupation as President of the USA. According to the classics, that means that Mars will be able to fully manifest the areas of life it governs, in this case power and status, amongst others.
With just two clicks of the mouse, you can select any chart or table to show anywhere on the screen. You can select any yoga from the list and read its definition and effect right on the screen. These four books are selected because they are complementary in the information they provide. This tool allows you to create your own printouts with any combination of charts, tables or dashas. In other words, you don't need to click or change the birthchart to quickly find out what Ascendant was rising anywhere. Or use it to locate a more auspicious Dasamsha chart (the divisional chart for profession) in your area.
Going through the 12 houses like this should be a useful tour through the fundamentals found in the classical texts. The Description of the Ascendant describes the general effects of Charts that have this particular Ascendant (Scorpio in this example). You choose which transits you want to be included, which planets in transit to use, the kind of transit, and the points in the chart that are being transitted (such as the natal planets, house cusps, yogi point, etc.) Kinds of transits that can be selected include exact degree transit, transit into signs, nakshatras, navamshas.
The table on the left shows the Binnashtakavarga for the Sun by default, and can be changed to show the scores for any of the planets. Instantly the screen is recalculated and you can observe and judge the effect it has on the horoscope.
In the limited space we have here, we will give an example based on Mars in President Bush's chart. On one hand, Mars is in a good dignity, has a very high score in Vimshopaka bala, and is hemmed in two benefics.
This means that even though Bush has this very powerful Mars carry his profession to great heights, this Mars-quality is less present in his personality and abilities. For example, you may be looking at a birth chart and be interested in seeing the progression chart.
You can customize the color of the planets and charts backgrounds, and choose from many chart border designs and worksheet background schemes. The ability to isolate all the people who have that particular thing in common in their chart, can be a great help in studying the effects of certain principles in Jyotish. This description is different from the description of the sign itself, because it applies the effects of the ascending sign to various areas of life.
Glancing up and down the list, one can locate that time of birth for which the dasha combinations make sense for each event. You can place the birth chart, navamsha, transit chart and dashas on the worksheet for the date of the event. Simply click on the screen where you want the new chart (for example the left lower corner), then select which chart (in this case the progression chart), and it will appear instantly in the selected position.
On the other hand, the low Ishta Kastha Phala score, makes Mars lack in ability to bring about very auspicious actions. Instead, the effect of Mars can only be seen through his career and decisions made in the professional realm. This indicates a tendency for seeking power, but with comforts (political, rather than physical). Out of the 6 Shadvargas (the 6 most important divisional charts) Mars is placed in, 4 are fire signs, adding ambition and forcefulness to Mars.
New right mouse click option allows you rotate the chart and superimpose any house to become the first.
